Eindhoven University of Technology
As part of my PhD, I am currently involved in the H2020 European Project on Impact Aware Manipulation (I.AM.). This project focuses on exploiting torque controlled robots in logistic applications to improve throughput with up to 10%. I am responsible for modeling/validation of impact models for known robots and objects from motion capture and robot proprioception sensor data. These models will serve as the basis to the envisioned impact-aware planning, learning, control, and sensing robot modules, with the focus on three scenarios: tossing, boxing, and grabbing of objects. Part of this project involves the collection and storage of experimental data to support and stimulate other researchers within the field of robotics and we therefore use 4TU.ResearchData.
